Background: Promoting health and providing a sense of well-being in any woman's life cycle would improve quality of life and bring great benefits to a community. Lifelong change and increased life expectancy have led women to spend more years in postmenopausal women. In this research, self-care consulting on women’s screening behavior during perimenopause has been investigated.
Methods: The samples of this quasi-experimental study were 42 eligible women from 39-51 years who were selected by convenience sampling. Data collection tools included demographic questionnaire and perimenopause self-care researcher-made questionnaire. Screening behavior change was measured before, one month and three months after consulting. This study was approved by the Ethics Committee of Alborz University of Medical Sciences (Abzums.Rec.1395, 12). SPSS v19 was used to analyze the data.
Results: Friedman non- parametric test showed that screening counseling behavior of participants increased significantly after one and three months after self-care counseling (p<0.0001).
Conclusion: The results of this study suggest the effectiveness of a health behavior change counseling designed based on individual self-care levels.
Keywords: Self-care, Consulting, Screening behavior
